The word Karia is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘graceful’, and this sums up the style that has been aimed for in the making of this Chardonnay. Around 70% barrel fermented, with 30%-new French oak maturation for 9 months. Generous and complex on the nose, which abounds with notes of lemon, orange blossom, fresh apples and toasted brioche. Mouth-filling and delicately spicy, but supremely elegant and refreshing. Drink with fine poultry or seafood, or with matured brie and other creamy cheeses.
